to connect by revealing all of your heart…

“Be courageous this month. Take on a challenge that you always thought was beyond your capability. Pursue an idea despite not knowing if people will respond positively. Dive into a relationship even if you’ve been hurt. Embrace vulnerability and reveal yourself without holding back. Exposing who we are (good and bad) takes lots of courage. Actually the root of the word courage is cor – the Latin word for heart and it’s originally meaning was “to connect by revealing all of your heart.” – Brene Brown

Which wolf will win? …

“An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life…

‘A fight is going on inside me,’ he said to the boy. ‘It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil — he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.’

He continued, ‘The other is good — he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you — and inside every other person, too.’

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, ‘Which wolf will win?’ The old Cherokee simply replied, ‘The one you feed.” – Cherokee legend
